“Through an interdiciplinary practice, my work examines how we perceive and interact with our built-environment. My interest lies in the cracks, tears and fraying edges that inevitably appear when materiality confronts use, gravity and ultimately resistance. My work explores the power structures implied when space is divided by focusing on the spatial barriers that distinguish architecture from landscape. The materials, as well as ideals, that hold these structures together are fragile; relying on social contracts to remain intact. That fragility itself can be seen as a threat to stability is a kind of delicate aggression, a subversive force I seek out in my work.”
“Art is an engine for shifting and sharpening perception. It is the extra amount that is more than the sum of its parts.”
